The Reeko AutoSPE-06Plus workstation is an automated solid-phase extraction system that is designed for the extraction and concentration of trace organic compounds in aqueous samples, such as drinking water, tap water and source water. The system can automatically complete the entire SPE process including conditioning cartridges, sample loading, washing, drying, elution, concentration with automatic sensor endpoint.
Compared to a vacuum manifold SPE, the AutoSPE-06Plus saves time, solvents and labour ensuring high reproducibility and productivity for any analytical laboratories as well as improving laboratory safety by minimizing the chance of hazardous samples and chemicals being in contact with the end user.
Drying methods options: SPE column Nitrogen purge, vacuum pumping or both
The combination of nitrogen purge and vacuum pumping provide outstanding efficiency for drying. For example, drying a C18 with nitrogen purge and vacuum pumping reduces drying time by 40% compared with traditional nitrogen blowing, which not only increase the efficiency but also eliminate the risk of losing volatile samples, ensuring high recovery and reproducibility.
Anhydrous sodium sulfate column to remove moisture online
For some samples, a anhydrous sodium sulfate column is a more applicable method for drying, especially for samples where drying with nitrogen may decrease recovery. With the installation of anhydrous sodium sulfate column, the eluent can be dried by passing through the column directly and collected in the graduated test tube.
Both disk and cartridge configurations
Auto SPE instrument is available in both disk and cartridge configurations to suit the needs of different applications.
Sample capacity: 6 channels
6 channels operate simultaneously for condition, loading, rinse, dry and elution.
Option for serial columns operation
With the auto-flush function, the system is able to wash down the residue on the wall of the bottle after sample loading, preventing weak polarity compounds from being adhered, which improves the performance of extracting organochlorine and polyester compounds.
With visual window
Can timely monitor the status on collection or condensation.
Built-in concentration module
Independent nitrogen blow concentration and heat module.
Graduated collection tube
Infrared sensor endpoint
Can be used with both Conical and Round bottom collection tubes
Optical sensor endpoint detection
The endpoint is detected automatically by IR sensors.
Separate collection of multiple components
With two collection racks designed, more than one compound can be collected separately in a batch run, providing flexibility to handle complicate sample or method development.
Sealed in the collection chamber, the waste lines module seregates aqueous waste, solvent and chlorinated solvent into different waste tubing. An exhaust fan and a vent pipe extract any volatile solvents .The safety conscious design of AutoSPE-06Plus reduces the chance of the end user coming in contact with solvent ,making the operation safe and reliable.
The Auto SPE Series is the ideal solutions for the extraction of pesticides, antibiotics, PAHs, PCBs, semi-volatile organic compounds and microcrystal in aqueous samples. The system uses a valveless pump to quantitatively take the samples and a syringe pump to condition and elute. The Auto SPE Series can automate the entire SPE process for improved analytical precision and productivity.
Typical applications include: Pesticides, PAHs, veterinary drugs, SVOCs, PCBs, herbicides, dioxins, furans, and explosives reside, and flame retardants.
